The Hauge™ Airway is designed for simplicity and ease of use for most conscious sedation procedures, such as pulmonary and upper GI endoscopy. The anatomically correct profile provides an immediate patent oral airway without stimulating the gag reflex. The Hauge Airway provides enough lateral width to maintain the tongue anterior in the oropharynx to ensure airway patency and to accommodate a large variety of endoscopes and instruments. Plus, it has built-in ports for O2 administration and end-tidal CO2 monitoring by sidestream capnometers.
The Hauge Airway can accommodate:
- Suction catheters
- Fiberoptic bronchoscopes within an endotracheal tube
- Fiberoptic bronchoscopes without an endotracheal tube
- Upper GI endoscopes
- TEE endoscopes
- Esophageal Dilators
